Beer, Beer, Glorious Beer!

Right off the top, let me say that I am no great beer expert.  I HAVE been drinking more suds lately and enjoying them, but I am nowhere near as well traveled in beer as I am in single-malt whisky. …Continue

Thanks much to you all for sharing your recipes and food ideas.  I've been spending much more time in the kitchen because of you, even though it's a chilly 50 degrees F in there.

I'm trying to save $$ by heating my downstairs entertainment room/bedroom, where I spend most of my time, and leaving the ustairs unheated, except for the bathroom, which I keep at 73, and the kitchen which I keep at 50 so the refrigerator will operate properly.

Mmmmmm, those corn cobs do look yummy!

Oh, yes Felaine, the oven bacon cooked top and bottom evenly without turning it.

This time they came out great!  Thanks for the advice!  I re-cured the pan, twice.  Crisco and baked at 400F for an hour each time.  I noticed the first time that oil pooled in each pocket, and that was sticky afterwards.  So next time I turned it upside down while curing.

Then pre-heated before using, buttered, and put a little less in the pan.

Making the small "corn cobs" makes for more crispy crust than using a cake pan or loaf pan.

Napoleon, you have a way of telling a story, whether it is a hamburger, or the fat man/thin man. Gluttony is not a virtue. Hunger is not an ideal. Moderation in all things seems to reflect flourishing in all its aspects.

The main reason(s) I started cooking bacon in the oven was/were, less mess, and you don't have to stand over it and keep turning it.

SF author spider Robinson once said that the best way to fry bacon is in the nude. I guess he learned that method when he was living in a hippie commune in Nova Scotia....using a wood-burning stove with no oven..

Thanks for the bacon hint Felaine.  Yesterday I tried frying it in the oven like you do.  I think I'll use that method from now on, at least in the winter.  

It's easier and doesn't splatter all over my refrigerator.  I just now read that America's Test Kitchen cooks it that way also.  They say it cooks more evenly that way.

Our kids were treated to McDonald's on their birthdays....that's it.......3 kids, so 3 times a year......anything more would not have been a ''treat''!

Am not a clown fan either & never did find them that damn funny!!!
